Although contour analysis of pulse waves has been proposed as a non-invasive means
in assessing arterial stiffness in atherosclerosis, accurate determination of the
conventional parameters is usually precluded by distorted waveforms in the aged and
atherosclerotic objects. We aimed at testing reliable indices in these patient populations.
Digital volume pulse (DVP) curve was obtained from 428 subjects recruited from a health
screening program at a single medical centre from January 2007 to July 2008. Demographic
data, blood pressure, and conventional parameters for contour analysis including pulse
wave velocity (PWV), crest time (CT), stiffness index (SI), and reflection index (RI) were
recorded. Two indices including normalized crest time (NCT) and crest time ratio (CTR)
were also analysed and compared with the known parameters.
